200,000 legos, 352 lbs., & +$10,000

I'm of today watching Aya & Arys while Cami serves on jury duty (a.k.a. jury "doody" for all the fun it entails. So, its the perfect time for this gratuitous post about a guy who spent over a year building a 16.5 foot model of the Nimitz-Class aircraft carrier the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman (CVN-75). This thing is stunning, built to-scale even on the inside! It has electricity for lights and motorized catapults! The inner geeky boy in every man has to delight in this. I make only one request--don't ask me how I stumbled across this! An extensive gallery with more amazing photos is available here.
